Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NECA)

Leave Your Mark....


One of my all time favourite cartoon/comic when I was a kid and still is my favourite. These NECA action figures of the TMNT are super detailed based on the original comic of Eastman and Laird. Unfortunately I had to get rid of these figure for certain reason at the time. But I still have a the set of four still mint in package. I hope they re-realise these figures. I didn't take as many photos as I would like. I taken these photos around 2008

TMNT originated from a comical drawing sketched out by Kevin Eastman during a casual evening of brainstorming with his friend Peter Laird. The drawing of a short, squat turtle wearing a mask with nunchakus strapped to its arms was humorous to the young artists, as it played upon the inherent contradiction of a slow, cold-blooded reptile with the speed and agility of Japanese martial arts. Laird suggested that they create a team of four such turtles, each specializing in a different weapon. Eastman and Laird often cited the work of Frank Miller and Jack Kirby as their major artistic influences.

"I hold my Katana in a Relaxed and ready position. To my left Donatello and Michaelangelo follow suit with staff and nunchaku. Raphael guards my right side... I sense his body quivering with tense energy, waiting to be triggered into savage slashing release!!!!"
